Do BA use T5A for widebodies? I seem to recall only seeing narrow bodies there. T5A is normally used for narrowbodies (with a large number of jetbridges close to each other), and the satellites (B and C) serve widebodies and narrowbodies. There are also remote stands on the T5 property. SmithAir747Jump to post
That being said, I flew out of LHR last year back to the US, and there was no additional screening, just the same checkpoint in T3 that everyone else used, and nothing more at the gate. Has something changed recently? When I started flying between the US and LHR in the early-mid 2000s, all my US fl...Jump to post
My first cruise in my life was on Carnival Fascination. In June 2001, Fascination was doing a 3-night itinerary Miami to Nassau.

In the late 1980s there was a TV advertisement for TIME LIFE Books series "Mysteries of the Unknown" (a series of books dealing with ESP, UFOs, and other mysteries.).

At JFK, TWA used mobile lounges to transfer passengers between their two terminals--TWA Domestic (T6) and TWA International (T5, the Eero Saarinen masterpiece TWA Flight Center). On March 26, 1994, after getting off my TWA DC-9 from IND at T6, I was transferred in one of these mobile lounges from a ...Jump to post
I still wish Turbo Prop Aircraft like the Q400 had counter - rotating propellers.

Contra-rotating propellers are 2 propellers mounted one ahead of the other on the same shaft d...Jump to post
I hope next time I fly to London from Denver that I get on one of the heritage 747s. I need to go to the UK and Netherlands between 11 and 22 June and will most likely take the BA 747 LHR-DEN return. My fingers are crossed that I end up on one of the retros.
I cannot find any connecting routings or schedules from DEN to HNL via any of the California gateways. I tried random dates for a DEN-xxx-HNL trip, but no dice.

Could any of the retro 747s show up here at DEN eventually?
Fort Wayne International Airport (FWA) in Fort Wayne, IN, is another example.

A DL plane slid off a runway at FWA an hour or so ago, whilst taxying for departure to ATL. The 51 passengers were deplaned and taken back to the terminal, and the plane was in the process of being towed back.

TWA had "Comfort Class"; their Y was less dense in configuration than others.
I thought Trump used the Air Force 757, at least it looked like it was blue as I drove by on Ferguson Rd. FWA was the 2nd of 3 stops that day.

Re: Air Force One: FWA's runway can easily handle a 747.

By the way, I was on G-CIVK (Oneworld livery) outbound DEN-LHR and on another Oneworld livery 747 back from LHR-DEN.
Are these hi-J 747s then?
Is DEN served mainly by these frames, or are a mix of 747 configurations used on this route?
Those reasons all sound logical to me. Anyway, this was my first time ever sitting ahead of the wing on a 747; I've always been in Y, usually near the last set of doors (where the taper reduces the side blocks of seats from 3 to 2 creating room to creep out between the window seat and the window in ...Jump to post
